Redstorm Posted January 17, 2005 Report Share Posted January 17, 2005 I have a question that may have been answered previously, so forgive me if I am repeating. As you know, dd changed studios and now attends a studio with a professional modern company attached. The classical training she receives there is exceptional and she has improved tremendously in a short amount of time. Since she is in the 2nd company, dd is afforded the opportunity to take other forms of dance and is required to take modern and contemporary. She loves both modern and contemporary and does well in the classes. Is this good for young dancers to learn other forms of dance while they are training in classical? My personal feelings say yes. I think any dancer would be more well rounded if they have a wider area of expertise, but I was wondering what the professionals think about this. Do you think that introducing other dance forms will confuse the younger dancer and slow down thier progress? Quote Link to comment
